Fandom Fashion! How YOU Can Design For Comic-Con’s First Ever “Geek Couture” Show!!
Comic-Con and fashion have been associated for ages!!
You├óΓé¼Γäóve seen the photos — all the biggest geeks usually attend dressed as their favorite Comic-Con character. In fact, last year Bryan Cranston showed up dressed as himself!
So FINALLY some genius thought of the idea of putting on a ├óΓé¼┼ôGeek Couture├óΓé¼┬¥ fashion show at San Diego Comic-Con, and it├óΓé¼Γäós happening this year!!
According to the organizer, Star Wars├óΓé¼Γäó Ashley Eckstein at Her Universe:
├óΓé¼┼ôFangirls are already using the halls of San Diego Comic-Con International as their runway to showcase custom fashions. We wanted to give these designers a bigger stage to share their talent and also provide an educational experience in the fashion industry.├óΓé¼┬¥
Her Universe allows contestants to submit custom fashion designs online that are not costumes, but rather fashions inspired by ├óΓé¼┼ôanything that is celebrated at Comic-Con├óΓé¼┬¥. Out of the submissions, 30 designers will be chosen to compete in the Her Universe Fashion Show on July 24th!
The resulting Geek Couture will be judged by a panel, and the top two designers will win a chance to co-design an exclusive Her Universe collection for Hot Topic.
P.S. If you’re a designer, you can start submitting designs HERE.
